HOUSE NOTES:

*We will collect from each traveler 1 - 10 cedis ahead of time per each site. Ghana is becoming accustomed to the US tipping standards "unfortunately" and everyone is expecting to receive a tip nowadays and before you realize it your funds are gone. So to not pressure travelers it is best to do this collectively. *The only tips outside of this will be for your meals and hotel staff if you care to do so. Tips are generally 1 to 5 cedis

*Please allow local tour host to do all negotiations prior to any purchases. There is no set fee structure in Ghana out of stores with pre-set prices.

*Be sure to add your dinner bill or purchases ahead of time. Some venues have been known to add a few cedis here and there. I would suggest at a bar pay to for your drinks in advance. I'm just saying -- because those bills can start to get real creative. (lol)

*It is customary to tip your host and driver at the end of the tour so please be mindful.)
